2017-2018 School Year
Runs August 14, 2017 to June 4, 2018. School Calendar is available here. During Fall, Winter, and Spring breaks, LEA offers Childcare Camp for fixed weekly price.
Infants aged 6 weeks through 18 months are housed in a large spacious nest over 800 square feet with many mind stimulating activities. Language is especially important, even as a fresh Hatchling! We read books, speak with them to explain their environment, as well as teach them sign language. Tactile activities as simple as different textures up to stringing large beads on a ribbon focus on gross motor skills. Outdoor exploration begins as soon as the Hatchling can be seated in a wagon for outdoor rides. Socialization and mirroring older Hatchlings allows for emotional and accelerated growth.
Montessori is a developmental program. The child's chronological age does not automatically determine program placement. Placement and changes in class are recommended and decided collaboratively between LEA faculty and parents.
Toddlers aged 18 months through 3 years nest in an almost 1000 square foot room with a dedicated toddler sized kitchen area for dining and serving themselves. In addition, there is a toddler sized bathroom, various areas of room for Montessori activities, and an area for fun energetic dancing and jumping. Our Eaglets become more independent, learning to achieve finer motor skills, continue language skills, practical life skills, and engaging in group activities. They learn to get along with their peers and start helping with their community.
Students aged 3 to 6 years are in our Primary classroom where they begin to learn more advanced skills including handwriting, reading, botany, geography, and more practical life skills. Each child advances at his or her pace. Peers begin to help one another with other activities. Students start asking questions that the stimulating activities inspire. These lead to further understanding and learning beyond remote memorization and teacher centered class. It also solidifies the child's ability to be a self learner and to make good choices.
